The date has been set!!

Friday, February 19, 2010

Okay the date is July 31. That is the day of my reunion for high school of 20 years!!! Holy cow I can't believe it has been that long. I need to lose 50 pounds before then. I need a strategy. SO far I have put my self into training. Asking myself whatever I put in my mouth will help me get to my goal quick or slow it down?? Did I already have a treat this week and what was it?? Have to put the pressure on if this is going to work. Next on list is 1 weekend off a month to regroup and take a break. Do you think it is wrong to take a class on my weekend off like a zumba class or body pump?? I am so looking forward to having a weekend off. I am having a girls night out. Which I am kinda scared of going out to dinner during my training. Will have to save up calories and work out hard that week. Extra weight training and extra cardio. Maybe some dancing with the kids during the day to get more in. So 23 Weeks until the big day. If I lose 2 a week that is 46 pounds. I can do this. I CAN DO THIS I CAN DO THIS!!!!!!!!!
I have already started this week. SO if I add two more pounds on I will be at 48 pounds down. Need to think smart and think wise. Get the cookies and cupcakes off the counter and replace with carrots, celery, grapes and apples. ANYTHING healthy so when I don't have time to eat with the kids I can just grab and snack until I have time to eat a nice protein enrich low calorie meal. This will be hard because I get sick of eating the same thing all the time and right now I am comfortable with knowing what to eat and getting in 1600 calories and 120 grams of protein. All Right I am off to bed. That is going to be a priority too. Bed between 1030pm and 11pm and nothing to eat past 830. WIsh me luck and I will keep you posted.

    Good luck! Its great to have a goal & a concrete plan. I am hoping that is going to work for me too, I have a goal to run a 5k in Sept 2010. Seems like a long way off, but I have a long way to go.

    Good luck on your journey!

    I love how you have a plan of action. Planning is the hard part, following it will be easier then you think. This week I proved to myself that I can reach my daily goals as long as I set a plan of action in motion. I know that you will reach your goal. Look forward to seeing how you do.

    I stressed out about my 50th reunion from High School (Class of 1957). I ordered 5 dresses to try on and finally picked one. I tried so hard to lose weight that I think it took away from the fun of the planning. I wore the dress; the buttons popped in the front; but in the end - my friends didn't care - they were just happy to see me! Enjoy your reunion; strive to be healthy; enjoy!

    Hey Jenn, you can do this, I started last January for my class reunion in June, but it is my 50th and me thinks the weight just doesnt come off as easy as when I was younger, but I have really done well, hope by June I lose the rest of my weight, I plan on it, but I feel great, much healthier, I believe my blood pressure is at a point I can get off my medication, gotta get an ok from my doctor, It is so much fun to log on Sparks and get all of the help that is available, Just keep your goal in sight and you will succeed
